Model of collective inteligence

October 9, 2011

“You have a relatively large group of people, who reflects diverse opinions. They’re acting, relatively speaking, independently, offering up their judgements, and then there’s some mechanism to take all those judgements and aggregate them. And, collectively, you end up with, more often than not, an intelligent outcome”

In some way, that’s Twitter, isn’t it?
